Hood's Texans

Introducing a New Limited Edition Print Offering by Military Historical Artist Mark Maritato Hood's Texans Battle of Gettysburg Pennsylvania July 2nd, 1863

This painting by military Artist Mark Maritato depicts Major General John Bell Hood in front of Jerome B. Robertsons hard fighting Texas Brigade as they move forward in the assault of Little Round Top and Devils Den held by the extreme left flank of the Union Army of the Potomac. Hoods Confederate division under Major General James Longstreets Corps moved forward screaming the Rebel yell and slammed into the Federals troops posted on the boulder-strewn eminences. The 1st Texas Infantry Regiment carried their Texas State banner (against Confederate Army regulations) into the battle along side their battle flag. The Texas flag was made from the wedding dress silk of the wife of Texas Senator Louis T. Wigfall (Original Colonel of the 1st Texas) and edged in black Crape to memorialize the men of the regiment who were lost in the Cornfield at the battle of Antietam Creek Maryland in September of 1862. Shortly after the assault stepped off, General Hood was grievously wounded in the left arm by an exploding Artillery shell. Although he would survive his would, Hood would loose the use of his arm. At Gettysburg the Texas Brigade once again cemented its reputation as one of hardest fighting and toughest organization of soldiers in Robert E. Lees Army.
